While the game is loading pressing ESC causes it to crash
This is a known issue with the game when pressing ESC; this will return you to the main menu, at which point if you attempt to save the game it will not know where to save it and cause the game to crash and go back to the desktop. The resolution for this is to not press ESC during the time the game is trying to load into a world.
